Abstract
This paper is aiming at illustrating the potential of ICT for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals which were declared by the United Nations in 2015 as binding for all nations of our planet addressing both developing and developed countries. ICT must play a significant role if the SDGs should be achieved as projected in 2030. The impacts of ICT on sustainability are twofold: On the one hand, there might be negative effects on sustainability such as the generation of electronic waste, on the other hand, ICT is an enabler of more efficient resource usage, education, and business operations which is the critical success factor for achieving the SDGs. This paper's goal is to examine several ways that the information, communication, and technology sector thinks it may help accomplish the SDGs. The article describes the elements of the sustainable development idea and the relationship between ICT and sustainable development.
